Sharing some love…

This week, I received the Liebster Award from StrawberryIndigo’s Picture’s in Living Colour.

This is a gorgeous site dedicated to celebrating colours and sights all around us through the lens of StrawberryIndigo’s camera. If you have not come across her site yet, go check it out now and let your sights be lifted by the beautiful images. Thank you StrawberryIndigo 🙂

So I am passing on the award and sharing some love to the following bloggers…

Aditi Sarin’s Adobe Passions & Art Creations

I am going to copy her latest post to give you a taste of what you will find in this blog…

Art is anything that you create with a passion. No matter if your lines are not straight, if your circles look like eclipses or your portraits of human being look like an alien who just landed on the earth. As long as you see beauty in it, others find it interesting/absolute nonsense and/or as long as its been talked about, trust me you have created an art. Art needs no justification, let them judge if they want to…

MaryBeth Coudal’s The Connected Life

This is a woman who celebrates creativity and balances it with her family, her faith and life itself. I always enjoy MaryBeth’s posts because they are tinged with a simple honesty that strips away any pretenses. Check out her site and show her some love by following her blog.

Peter Weis

Peter Weis is a composer, a dabbler in short stories and prose, a reader and an observer of life. His posts are filled with thought and always leave me with a smile. He interjects all the posts with a great sense of humor and honesty that always have me coming back for more of a read. Check him out and let him inspire you.

Adam Bird

He is a husband, father and writer. He shares his posts, his photographs and his thoughts in a black and white blog. Adam does not hold back on anything he may be thinking at the time. His dry British humor infuses the blog with bursts of colour. Check him out. This blog will not disappoint.

Julie Jordan Scott’s Julie Unplugged

This lady will astound you with her focus on creativity and blending it into her daily world to create an artistic life. Her posts are filled with raw beauty and honesty. Check her site out. Be inspired to live an artistic life.

I met all 5 bloggers above through the WordPress PostaDay2011/PostaWeek2011 project… this is where you sign up to post every day or at least once a week on your WordPress blog. I am thrilled that by signing up to this challenge, not only did I set myself a blogging schedule but I met fellow bloggers from all walks of life and all corners of the world that have only added to my 2011. So thank you to each blogger but a special love and thanks to the five bloggers I have mentioned in this post.

Blogs I Applaud and Award

There are many blogs that I subscribe to and many that I have found while wandering through different web links. There are a few blogs that really stand out to me though. I have decided to give a weekly Blog award to the Blog that I most Applaud for the week.

This week I am choosing a blog that never fails to inspire or challenge me. It is written by a woman who is a fellow Scribbler and is a loyal follower, commenter and encourager of my own blogging attempts. I first befriended her on the Scribblerati Ning network of writers that I belong to. Since then she has become someone I admire.

Her posts are insightful and grounded in deep thought. Most of her posts are on writing and the writing life but all of them are rooted in personal accounts and experiences. She is a writer first and foremost but I am getting to know her as a kind, wise and honest friend and woman.

This is what I love about online networks whether through blogs or social communities: you may not meet the person in reality but you do start connecting on a deep level with birds of a similar feather to yourself. The internet and world wide web have indeed made the world a smaller place but it has also made human connection more accessible in a very tangible way. Many of these fellow writers and poets that I have met online are becoming friends. This lovely lady who I am applauding and awarding this week is definitely one of these that I count as friends.

This week’s Blog that I Applaud and Award is:
….drum roll…

Rachna’s Scriptorium

So, if you have not yet come across Rachna’s wonderful Scriptorium….make haste and take yourself to her site this week. It will be a visit that you will thank me for recommending.

I hereby Applaud and Award

Rachna

with

The Grasshopper Award
